The software overhead which includes interprocess communication latency and the overhead of management processes or threads, is a crucial factor to affect the performance of massively parallel processors system. Multiple threaded architecture can effectively reduce and hide the software overhead. Many models need to be implemented inside a microprocessor. Conversely, this paper addresses a multiple threaded architecture adopted for current microprocessors and implements the architecture using hardware description language. Furthermore, the paper presents its driven execution model and evaluates the performance of the presented multithreading system using a trace driven simulator
